USA Hockey has called off holding its world junior summer showcase, set to be held in Michigan in two weeks.

With 44 players invited, the event was part of USA Hockey’s selection process in determining its team to compete at the world junior championships in Alberta in late December.

Without citing the coronavirus pandemic, USA Hockey executive John Vanbiesbrouck said it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel the event.

USA Hockey Arena is in Plymouth.
